What makes a great design? Humans tend to build success by examination of failure, not by imitating success. This book shows that by carefully anticipating—and thus averting—failure, invention and design become more successful. Through examination of spectacular engineering failures, the author shows that modeling designs solely based on past successes is the surest road to failure.
